Imagonna is the title of my Peace Corps memoir, here is another excerpt–
The St. Andrews Methodist Church at home in St. Albans, West Virginia and Wesley Foundation at WVU expanded my appreciation of human diversity. Out of all this, Dr. Albert Schweitzer became one of my heroes. In Nigeria I learned of Schweitzer’s clay feet, something common in idols. Dr. William Minor, my philosophy professor at West Virginia University, rounded it all out. I came from his classes with Gandhi as one of my heroes. Years later I learned that Gandhi and I had the same birth date. Gandhi was murdered in 1948 when I was twelve years old and before I even heard of him.
Too many of my heroes have been murdered.
